Automotive-grade Monolithic Ceramic Capacitors Designed
For Infotainment Systems
Murata Americas announced that it has developed the GRT series, a new line of
automotive-grade monolithic ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) that meets the Automotive
Electronics Council’s (AEC)-Q200 Grade 2 standard. The line is ideal for automotive
infotainment and comfort-and-convenience applications, such as navigation systems and
audio equipment. It offers a case size of 0201 to 1210 (EIA), capacitance range of 1.0pF to
100uF, and 4 to 100VDC rated voltage. Further, the line delivers temperature characteristics
of X5R, X6S, X7R, and C0G.
Over the last several years, there has been an increased demand for both industry-compliant and automotive grade MLCCs. Murata’s GRT series is comprised of several
variations of the solution to ensure that the market’s needs are being fully met.

High Flex Cables Deliver Quality Signal Transmission
W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) presents its family of high flex cables
to meet the semiconductor industry’s growing demand for higher data rate
cables in a flexible, lightweight, and cost-effective package. Engineered for
complex cleanroom environments, GORE High Flex Cables provide reliable
signal integrity for high-speed data transmission in a variety of semiconductor
equipment applications. These cables support standard protocols such as
Ethernet Cat5, 6, and 7, USB 2.0 and 3.1, Camera Link, CoaXPress, and more.
GORE High Flex Cables are the ideal choice for cleanroom, vacuum, and
low-charging applications. They protect against particulation, outgassing,
and electrostatic discharge due to their unique low-friction, chemically-inert
materials. The unique construction of these cables significantly reduces weight
with a small bend radius for easier installation. All of this translates to reduced
maintenance and downtime, and lower total costs over the life of the equipment.

Inclination and Tilt Sensors Designed For
Construction, Industrial Markets
The MTLT family of tilt sensors are appropriate for a wide range of static
and dynamic applications in construction and industrial markets such as
boom tilt monitoring, bucket loader roll back protection, PV/CSP solar
tracking systems and others.
All three products are IP67 rated inclinometers with an integrated
RS-232 interface and flying lead cable operating from a 9 V to 32 V single
supply. The MTLT105S and MTLT110S are designed for applications
needing < 0.5 degree and < 1.0 degree accuracy, respectfully, over the
full operating temperature range.
The MTLT sensors also include programmable tilt alarms for tilt safety
applications. The alarm can be programmed to be triggered to activate
when the tilt exceeds a specified threshold. The tilt alarm can also
be used to lock out controls or trigger an alarm or warning light. It is
an all-in-one tilt safety solution eliminating the need for an external
microprocessor to interpret tilt angles.

The lineup consists of a range of 818
capacitors offering different temperature
characteristics, rated voltages, and case
sizes. Given that, these components
deliver enhanced reliability in a decreased
package size – two critical benefits in
designing for infotainment and comfort-and-convenience devices.
Typical applications for GORE High Flex Cables
include high-speed transmission and datalinks,
control networks, moving cables in machine
vision systems (camera), high-speed image
scanning, processing and data transfer, display
interconnects, laptop screens, external wirings
and digital video cameras.
Each unit is fully calibrated over temperature
providing confidence in safety applications.
